Freshmen Year- When I started on Uintah I really didn't know how I would do. Ran a 5k or two and then just started running with the team. The older kids really liked me and called me the good freshmen. I then made varsity, which kinda ticked Nathan off but I was happy with it. Time trials I ran like 18 flat. Along with Mason,Connor, and other people. The first few races went really good then I went to the doctor and he told me to get fat because he thought I was too skinny so the second part of my season was pretty crappy. I didn't get to go to state and was ticked because Nathan beat me at region.
Sophomore Year- This was the year that I got that dark Cherokee blood running through me and then I decided to just haul butt the whole season because I was ticked at what happened to me freshman year. The first few meets of cross country and the whole season was great. I was able to go to state and got a low seventeen for 3 miles. And track went better too. Because normally I love cross country more than track. It was a pretty good year for this Cherokee kid.

So I haven't updated the blog for a while but since this is my first half marathon of the year I'll probably start posting some stuff haha. Anyways got up at 5 am cause the tracks train left at 6 am. It was kinda cold when we left but still not too bad. Both the marathon and the half marathon started at the U of U by the hospital and ended by the Utah Court House. But we winded through a lot of neighborhoods and such. My goal was sub 1:20 I knew I had it in me if the weather conditions were good and the course didn't have a lot of hills. But karma got me today it was quite a hilly course with lots of long stretch hills which slowed me down about off goal pace. And my first mile was a 5:23 which wasn't the plan haha. But on the good side of things my average pace was 6:19/mile so I am happy about because I haven't ran a lot of mileage at goal pace. Good race and a lot of fun. I took 12 th overall out of 1694 runners and first in my age group out of 43 kids. Which I'm happy with. Sadly I didn't beat all the girls in the race (two beat me) they were probably Kenyans or something. Good race to start out with, but I'll try to go sub 1:20 next time and hopefully get it. #GoodTimes
